AFA: Boycott Macy’s for Sponsoring Gay Pride ’Sex Parades’
The final week of Pride month kicked off with a good old fashioned boycott from the religious right Tuesday when anti-gay group American Family Association (AFA) launched a campaign against Macy’s department stores for their support of gay pride events across the country.
An announcement on AFA’s website titled "The shocking truth about Macy’s Department Stores," which has the hate group’s standard "sky is falling" language can be read below.
Let Macy’s know your family does not join in their celebration of sin.
Most American families don’t know about the contemptible role of Macy’s department stores in supporting "gay pride" throughout the nation.
The radical events and activities of a typical ’pride’ week-end are decadent and highly-sexualized. They are a disgrace to communities and certainly shouldn’t be financially supported by a retailer like Macy’s that claims to serve families.
Sex parades in many cities, among them New York City, Columbus, Phoenix, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Seattle and Kansas City, are supported by Macy’s sponsorship. In Orlando,Macy’s is the "presenting sponsor"of the parade.
The red star that has become Macy’s logo can often be seen floating as a balloon high above the marchers in these parades, and Macy’s employees march in the parade with signs and T-shirts that read "Pride and Joy." Yet some of their fellow parade participants are partially-clothed and engaged in simulated sex acts, even while children are present. Some floats and signs mock man/woman marriage in support of same-sex "marriage" while others outwardly mock sincerely held Christian faith.
